Salty Air, Sea "Dogs" and Rainforests.....

Spring Break Day 4.

Being on vacation today, I took mom and dad and the three kids to San Francisco. We met my good friend Donna and her daughter Monique. We first lunched at the Rain Forest Cafe, a first time adventure for little Mary, and for Nanny and Papa too, and had fun among the "thunderstorms", monkey squeals, elephant trumps, and cheetah roars. A truly magical and fun place..and tasty food too.

The weather was gorgeous, sunny and breezy, a little too breezy in the shade, but clad in sweatshirts we strolled down fisherman's wharf, Nick tipped the street musician playing a ..hmm, what is it called, not a harpsichord, but a...hummm...something...I forgot...and Anthony tipped the magician. They all got a kick out of the "bush man" and Nick had has portrait sketched by a street cartoonist. (It so impressed him, that now that he is home, he is in his room practicing. He now thinks, rather than making money by setting up his street side newscast, he will do street side portraits!)

We worked our way back to Pier 39, did a little trampoline bungee jumping (Nick), chocolate purchasing (mom and Tadpole) and Sea "Doggie" (Lion) watching (all) and ended it with a tour of the Aquarium..sharks, starfish, sting ray...swimming all around us as we travel through a glass tunnel under the bay! oh, there was a stop in a puppet shop for Nick to spend his allowance on a "Doozie" marionette puppet.

An awesome day..driving home talking to mom about things that are real....(God and His word.) Who could have asked for a better day!???? Not I. Thank you Lord.
